Although I came to Korea with the intent to be staying in Daegu, I've found myself living in Changwon for close to two months now. When I first arrived I was prepared to sign a contract with Mama's English, teaching part time for the first few months and eventually switching over to full time. Things changed after meeting with my recruiter though and hearing that Hanvit (an academy offering 4 day work weeks) was looking for a new teacher in December. He also knew of a temporary job I could take in the meantime and thus here I am in Changwon, another city scratched off my "places visited' in Korea list. The only thing I knew about Changown before arrivng was that it's a planned city (apparently modeled after Canberra Australia) and Eric Thames used to play baseball here, other than that I was clueless.
Where to start. After living in this country for three years I have memories, experiences and stories galore. I'll now always be a bit partial to the Land of the Morning Calm. Filled with delicious foods, beautiful nature and friendly people, I'm always happy to return.
